tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ron! Muddled orange & amber with a quickly fizzling white head. Aroma is tart & lactic forward. Sour lemons, cherries, light apple, with a mild vinous & slight oak character backing it all up. Faint sweat sock funk in the finish. Taste is sour lacto without much burning acidity at all. Light tart cherries & some sour lemon flesh. A touch of oak & a biting, slight tartness in the finish. Not much funk in the flavor, this one is mostly just tart. Dry finish, very nice stuff.

Hamirubi (517) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2016
37.5cl bottle at Nacht van de Grote Dorst 2016 in Itterbeek (22 IV 2016), shared with a friend. Pale light red and gloomy cherries geuze. A blunt sourness and funk features overwhelm the brett and wild lambic notes. Refreshing drink from Allagash Brewing Company.

Beer5000 (5721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2016
375 ml bottle @ Nacht van de Grote Dorst 2016. Unclear, pale pink body with a moderate sized and fast disappearing off-white head. Quite light in aroma, funky, acidic, wood, sour cherry and lemon. Flavor is funky with Brett, barnyard, wood, lemon, sour cherry and a bit spicy. Relatively mild in flavor and I found the cherry flavor almost in the background compared with the typical Belgium Kriek that actually often can be too much. Normally I prefer my Kriek a bit matured to let the cherry flavor settle a bit, this one has still the young, tartness in combination with a bit more modest cherry flavor. A bit unusually but I like it. Fine balanced body and quite smooth in aftertaste.

Pinkish red color with light punk head. Aroma is balsamic, cherry skins, menthol cough drops, and vanilla. Taste is battery acid tart that is way too much. Salad dressing.

Pours a light pinkish color with similar colored head. Cherries on the nose, strong aroma of tart cherries, with a little funk mixed in; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with tart cherry and dry. I was pleasantly surprised how much the fruit comes through on this one.
